Top 10 Pebble Beach Moments

With 2023 winding to a close, the year ahead has a tall task if it hopes to match the year that was at Pebble Beach. From hosting the U.S. Women’s Open for the very first time, to Tiger Woods sending golf fans into a frenzy with one swing at The Hay, these are the top moments from the past 12 months at Pebble Beach.

Justin Rose has long been regarded as one of the world’s premier players and in February he added a victory at Pebble Beach to his resume. Weather proved as much a factor as the contenders in the field but a Monday finish did nothing to dampen the elation of victory at Pebble Beach.

Fresh off a win in her LPGA debut, Rose Zhang arrived at Pebble Beach with the spotlight firmly on her. She delivered one of the shots of the week before the tournament even began and did so with a trick we’ve never seen before. Really, does it get any cooler than Rose Zhang?

There’s something about the 17th hole during U.S. Opens. Whether it be Jack’s 1-iron, Tom’s chip-in or Gary Woodland’s daring chip from the putting surface, there have been countless iconic moments at the penultimate hole.

Danielle Kang’s may not have come during the final round with the championship on the line but that doesn’t stop us from marveling at this stellar play for birdie.

With the U.S. Women’s Open coming to Pebble Beach for the first time, it was only fitting that icons of the game Annika Sorenstam and Michelle Wie West were in the field. While neither advanced to the weekend, they bid the championship a grand farewell together on the famed 18th green.

With more than 100 years of history, there are hardly any “firsts” left to be had at Pebble Beach. In Gee Chung managed to make history nonetheless, recording the first ever hole-in-one at Pebble Beach during a U.S. Women’s Open.

With the likes of Nelly Korda, Michelle Wie West, Annika Sorenstam and Rose Zhang dominating the headlines early in the week, 25-year-old Allisen Corpuz quietly made her way to the top of the leaderboard where she put on a closing clinic during Sunday’s final round. The only player in the field to card four consecutive sub-par rounds, she joins the list of greats on the famed wall of champions at Pebble Beach.

Dwyane Wade has a lengthy highlight reel on the hardwood. This fall however, he hit the shot of a lifetime right here at the iconic par-three seventh. Quite the place to make your first ace – with rental clubs no less!

Spyglass Hill is notoriously difficult, consistently ranking as one of the most challenging layouts in the United States. Don’t tell that to Nikki Iniakov though. The Stevenson Junior set a high school record carding eight birdies on the front nine for a tally of 28.

No one knows The Hay quite like Tiger Woods – he did design it himself after all. While playing host at the second annual TGR Jr. Invitational, the 15-time major winner posted a video of himself hitting a wedge into the picturesque second. Golf social media was instantly buzzing about a Tiger comeback which ultimately came to fruition a few weeks later at the Hero Challenge.

There’s long been a debate about whether a hole-in-one on a par three course really counts. No one is going to question this one however from 11-year-old Holden Bautista as he had quite the witness. Tiger Woods witnessed the moment and Holden made sure he didn’t forget it at a post-tournament Q&A.
